Stuck In NeutralBook
Shawn McDaniel's life is not what it may seem to anyone looking at him. He is glued to his wheelchair, unable to voluntarily move a muscle--he can't even move his eyes. For all Shawn's father knows, his son may be suffering. Shawn may want a release. And as long as he is unable to communicate his true feelings to his father, Shawn's life is in danger.
To the world, Shawn's senses seem dead. Within these pages, however, we meet a side of him that no one else has seen--a spirit that is rich beyond imagining, breathing life.
The paperback features an Extras section, giving readers even more insight into Shawn's life, and includes a Q&A with Terry Trueman, as well as a sneak peek at the sequel to Stuck in Neutral, Life Happens Next.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Fourteen-year-old named Shawn McDaniel is convinced his father is trying to kill him, not out of anger but from love. Shawn has cerebral palsy (CP). A blood vessel in his brain burst when he was born, leaving him without any muscle control. This means Shawn cannot walk, lift his arms on his own accord, or even smile. Unfortunately, his family believes Shawn is not only completely physically inept, but they also assume his brain is dysfunctional. That is only partially true.
